Perler Beads

One of my favorite things about perler beads is that they are so good for developing fine motor skills! Having to pick up the small beads and place them in the right spots is an excellent way to have fun and to help your child develop all at the same time. 

It’s also a wonderful activity for helping to increase focus and concentration.


How to Make Perler Beads

If you’ve never made perler beads before you need to start by getting together everything you need. 

You will need a peg board to design your perler beads on. And you will need the actual perler beads that are made specifically for this project. 

Then use the perler bead pictures below to design your sea animal perler beads. You can see from the pics how many individual beads there are. Simply count the beads to know where to place them on the board.

Once you’ve placed all of your perler beads in place you need to iron them to fuse them together

Perler beads can be made for any topic and any holiday! Some of the perler beads we have made are Ninja Turtle Perler Beads, Pokemon Perler Beads, Minecraft Perler Beads, Perler Bead Magnets, Halloween Perler Beads, Autumn Perler Beads, Christmas Perler Beads, Easter Perler Beads, and Summer Perler Beads!

Now that you have everything gathered together that you need, let’s get started making some sea animals perler beads!

As you can see the sky is the limit with the colors and designs you can use when creating your octopuses! My kids made a more natural looking octopus as well as a brightly colored one:)

Who says that dolphins can’t be pink and purple? 😉

As you can see my more logical son made a blue dolphin while the girls decided to design theirs to mimic the rainbow;)
